It is 3:00 am and once again, I am wide awake. Isn't it funny how you can have some of your clearest thinking at such odd hours.
Last night I had a meeting for our local Touchdown Club. I had an hour before the meeting started and on the spur of the moment, I decided I would run into our local coffee shop and grab something to drink, just to kill time.
As I walked in, I found, with great pleasure that two of my friends were sitting there. We all smiled and hugged and I sat down to talk with them until time for my meeting. It was a very enjoyable time. Before leaving, we made plans to start meeting there at least once a month. I loved the idea!
Later, one of the friends sent me a text about how nice it was to have the three of us together like that, and.......it truly was.
I have been sitting here trying to go back to sleep and that chance meeting came back to me and I was filled with a warm peace. It is wonderful to know that I have two wonderful friends like this.
It hit me that the three of us were able to talk, without guarding our words or worrying that what we said would be taken wrong or repeated. In other words.....there was a complete trust. I am so blessed to have two such amazing ladies in my life.
I have many aquaintances and I have many people that I call friends. I am blessed with having some really great people in my life but, these two are special. When we are together there is an ease and comfort that you don't find with just anyone. We can laugh at and with each other......we can cry with each other...... we can share our secrets with each other and.......we know.......that there is a complete trust. How many people, outside of family, can any of us say that about?
So.....as I sit here......at 3:00am......I want to say to these two. I love you Steph and Patti and thank you for being the amazingly wonderful friends that you are!
